Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an
An Extreme Amount of IgnoranceGet ready for a lot more of this garbage reporting: http://www.ktvb.com/news/Dog-injured-by-hunters-trap-near-Bogus-Basin-136858078.htmlAn Extreme Amount of Ignorance3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Besides the huge Appeal to Emotion fallacy, the awful media spin on trapping is what's really grinding my gears. After seeing people repost the news article with their horribly biased opinion about the situation made me want to construct a logical argument for why the dog owner was completely at fault here, not the trapper.
First of all, what part of trapping season do dog owners NOT understand? I know someone from a rural community in New Mexico, and when he traps he ties an orange ribbon above where all of his traps are set. This is understood by everyone that lives in his area. Trapping is not a crime, in fact it is part of a bigger science (how do you think they collar wolves?) The story is a complete lie to shed a fabricated perception of trapping to the urbanites. You see it ramped up lately all across the country. There is a major
Ohio Holocaust Memorial Protested By...If I told you that a group of people were protesting the construction of a Holocaust Memorial in Ohio, you'd probably assume that they were the Ku Klux Klan or Stormfront or any other white supremacist hate group.Ohio Holocaust Memorial Protested By...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But the actual protesters are people who are infamous for being far more militant and hateful: anti-theists!An atheist group that is known for targeting supposed violations of the separation between church and state recently protested a Holocaust memorial because the monument plans to feature a Star of David.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, or FFRF, has stated its opposition to the proposed Ohio Statehouse Holocaust memorial because its leaders believe that including the religious symbol would create "legal precedent."
The co-presidents of the FFRF, Don Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, wrote a letter to Richard Finan, chair of the Capitol Square Review

Unlike the thousands of people that have mindlessly copy and pasted comments, brainwashed by organizations that truly underestimate the extent of the "wolf issue," I have personally taken the time to write a 21-page long letter that shall exemplify the disastrous after-effects of wolf, the government, and the media. I urge you to take this work with the utmost seriousness. Because at the end of the day, the ones that are copying and pasting are the followers and bystanders. They truly believe that they are doing the right thing, which is all well and good, but they are not writing their own words. They are not speaking with their own voice. They speak with a voice that has been casted down upon them and

ETSY PROHIBITS SELLING CERTAIN ANIMAL PARTS (ETA)Here's the link: https://www.etsy.com/teams/7722/discussions/discuss/12715475/ETSY PROHIBITS SELLING CERTAIN ANIMAL PARTS (ETA)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So here's the deal--the vast majority of what they covered were things that were already illegal and we all know not to trade in, like leopard, tiger, etc. However, they've also added all the animals covered by the Endangered Species Act http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedAnimals.jsp
The banned list includes a few animals I've seen traded in fairly frequently, including abalones, alligators, Canadian lynx, bears, and cougars. So if you have anything on the lists, time to take it down!
Please don't panic or yell at Etsy. This isn't Etsy singling out dead critter artists. Mostly it's them clarifying their terms AND trying to abide by the laws of the land. eBay has banned bear and cougar for years, probably because so many states ban them anyway. I see this as a good thing; it's a way to protect species that are in serious trouble, and gives a little more boost to those trying to stop that tra

Misha Defonesca, girl "raised by wolves"Misha Defonseca: Author who made up Holocaust memoir ordered to repay £13.3mMisha Defonesca, girl "raised by wolves"4 months ago in Personal More Like This
The author of a bestselling Holocaust memoir has been ordered to pay back £13.3 million ($22.5 million) after she admitted much of her sensational story was pure fantasy.
Misha Defonseca, a Belgian writer now living in Massachusetts, claimed she was adopted by a pack of wolves and killed a Nazi soldier to survive after her Jewish parents were taken during the Second World War.
But it emerged that she was not Jewish, as claimed, her real name was Monica Ernestine Josephine De Wael and her tale of four years wandering through forests to escape the Holocaust was untrue.
Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years was published in 1997 and was translated into 18 languages and made into a French film called Survivre Avec Les Loups before Defonseca, 76, admitted that much of it was a lie.

Horses Are For Courses!With all this talk of horse meat in the news lately, it's time we take a step back and really ask ourselves all the fuss is about.Horses Are For Courses!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
History of Horse Meat
Horses are often revered as working animals, and companions. They've greatly contributed to the advancing of civilizations, from the horse-drawn war chariots of the Romans, to the Pony Express of the Old West, horses have had a significant and lasting effect on all of the civilizations that have adopted them. These faithful, hardworking animals have had a place at our side since we first domesticated them. But horses were on the menu long before we were on their backs.
Horse meat was central to our ancestors' diet and played a sacred role in rituals and customs. For example, Celtic chieftains were buried with their steeds, the Vikings' favorite meat was horse meat, and Caligula even appointed his horse as a Senator of Rome. The switch from food source to working animal can be partially attributed to Pope Gregory III in the 8th c
Oh yeah, I did - RANT about Avril Lavigne's songA blog I follow just posted a gif from that song by Avril, called 'Girlfriend'. We all remember this, I believe, it was a big hit.Oh yeah, I did - RANT about Avril Lavigne's song3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But seriously, both song AND video are so absolutely cruel and egocentric that I can do nothing but roll my eyes when ever I see/hear it.
Avril is bitching. That's pretty much it, she's bawwwing about how she wants a dude who - that's right - already has a girlfriend.
She's his girl. He allowed her to be his girl, therefore, gee, I don't know, MAYBE he loves her! Maybe she's a really sweet and kind girl, why else would he date her?
But no, don't you dare to think that, because Avril knows what the girl is really like.
Let's see a few statements she makes during the song.
She's like so whatever
What's that supposed to mean? That she's boring?
Well, at least she's not boasting her ego through 50% of the song, while bitching about Avril in other 50%.
No. the girlfriend is so whatever, while Avril is a motherfucking princess,
Animal Rights activists vs Invasive SpeciesFrom the indominable Retrieverman:Animal Rights activists vs Invasive Species2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is well-known to readers of this blog that I am ultimately quite contemptuous of the animal rights movement.
And after reading William Stolzenburg’s Rat Island: Predators in Paradise and the World’s Greatest Wildlife Rescue, I’ve become even more so.
Stolzenburg is one of the best writers about ecology who writes for a general audience. His previous book, Where the Wild Things Were, carefully chronicles the scientific discoveries that have shown that large predators are a great asset to ecosystems. In a world where human activities have so severely pared back the ranges of so many large predators and forced some of them into extinction, ecosystems are now suffering great imbalances. These imbalances include overpopulation of grazing or browsing species– such as the overpopulation of white-tailed deer in North America– and a phenomenon known as “mesopredator release,

The Truth about the Candice Berner caseRead it and weep, those who defended the wolf's conduct. The full facts of the case have finally been released. Wolves were the culprits. No, they were not really hybrids, or rabid, or acting in self defence.The Truth about the Candice Berner case3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've organised this entry in a way responding to all the questions which, until now, had been left unanswered. Questions are written in normal font, while the segments of the report are in italics.
1. Were wolves regularly hunted prior to the attack? (Hunting wolves is the time-proven method of keeping wolves fearful of humans)
Human use of wolves in the Chignik Lake area is low. Mandatory sealing documented the harvest of a few wolves during the last decade, but no wolves have been sealed in recent years. p.6
2. Were there any other animal tracks on the scene? (Coyote, mountain lion, bear, dog etc.)
Animal tracks along the sides of the road and in the area of the attack were identified as wolf tracks based on the size of individual tracks. Although
capturing mewtoOK people, maybe you have already guesed this one, or found another way, but I just felt like sharing this with youcapturing mewto10 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you somehow have troubles capturing mewtwo...use a SABLEYE
at least in pokemon Y mewtwo moves are
since sableye is both Dark and Ghost, it can be harmed by psychic or focus blast, and after a while both barrier and recover stop making any effect, so you have mewtwo served to you on a silver platter
also, if you teach sableye Shadow ball, it will be lowering mewtwos sp.def with every hit making more damage
I just used a sableye in lever 35 and it did the trick pretty well
and use duskballs, not ultraballs, work better in dark caves
well, that was all, hope it works for some of you
